Very soon, through Harrison's of Edinburgh
What is the recommended spacing between chalk striped (not pin stripes). Also, any tips of choosing a fabric that would be more tasteful when made up (as compared to a 1920's gangster pinstripes)
No mystery I'm afraid.
I phoned the bloke up who makes my stuff and ordered some swatches.
I prefer wider for chalk stripes-- 3/4"-- 1", perhaps. To avoid the gangster look, go for muted stripes as opposed to bright solid white. This gets a little easier with flannels, or if you get, say, a pale blue stripe on navy.
Harrisons & Fox (both regular and LL) make the nicest navy chalk stripes i've seen, especially the Fox, which is a perfect shade of midnight
Does Carl sell albini?
He's got Thomas Mason books for sure

This is my recent project with my Hong Kong tailor.
Cloth by Dugdale 'cool wool' range, it is a very wrinkle resistant 9oz wool, unlike the fresco range, this has a significant smoothy touch but with all the benefits of a stiff 11-12oz wool worsted.
Obviously, Mr. Hui always put a nice pagoda shoulder on my garment since I am not a fan of soft shoulder.
There is also a pair of match trouser and double breasted waistcoat, which is not shown in the picture.
my second post to this thread and am looking for assistance.
does anyone here have a source to access Hickey Freeman fabric ?
@SoGent Why do you need HF fabric?
for my own makeup. there is a particular color that will work perfectly for what i'm doing
Brown herringbone natural light pictures coming this weekend. Weather has been too poor to take them this week
Also will have a birdseye and sharkskin suiting comparison. (10+ swatches from Harrisons, Minnis, Lesser etc)
Hi Add, it is a very nice suit with pagoda shoulders. Long time ago, I visited Mr Hui with you, it made me understand he provided very personal touch to customers but not so impressive about his work. After seeing your photos for pagoda shoulders, my mine change a bit. Does his CMT remain unchanged?
Hi Add, I understand you are a loyal customers to Dudgale Brothers fabric, why you love them so much?
I do not like Pagoda at all, but Dugdales is well regarded, and cheap. They're like Belvest of the cloth world. Under appreciated, less name recognition than other comapnies, but still a good cloth
